BTC price cancels Binance, Coinbase dip
Data from Cointelegraph Markets Pro and TradingView showed BTC/USD hitting $27,388 on Bitstamp — almost a new June high.
The pair continued a rebound that had begun the day before, with markets shaking off initial nerves from the United States Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) legal action against Binance and Coinbase.
In so doing, Bitcoin recovered all of its lost ground, returning to its previous trading range focused just below $27,000.
“Back to $27K. Great bounce from the 200-Week MA. Time to start the new uptrend to $38-42K on Bitcoin,” Michaël van de Poppe, founder and CEO of trading firm Eight, responded.
Van de Poppe referenced the 200-week moving average (MA), an important support level which, at $26,400, was only lost for a few hours.
A previous tweet called the BTC price correction “over,” echoing a similar sentiment from other popular traders.
“Bitcoin has retested the 200-week MA as support,” trader and analyst Rekt Capital confirmed.
Downside wicking below the MA has taken place but $BTC has managed to hold above it.

Rekt Capital had previously warned that a firm loss of the 200-week MA would result in a trip toward $20,000.
Analyzing the bounce itself, the trading suite DecenTrader saw cause for relief based on exchange trader behavior.
Commenting on the subsequent return below $27,000, analysts argued that it was increasing long positions holding the market back.
“We typically see a bit of a pullback until this is resolved,” they added.
Monitoring resource Material Indicators meanwhile tracked liquidity movements on the Binance order book, describing events as a “stairway to heaven” as conditions improved.
It nonetheless flagged $27,400 as a key area to break through, something which had not occurred at the time of writing.
Hayes: Bitcoin has scaled “wall of worry”
Equally unshaken in his faith in BTC price action moving to a better place was Arthur Hayes, former CEO of derivatives exchange BitMEX.
In ongoing social media reactions, Hayes called on hodlers to wait for the full return of the Bitcoin bull market.
“The wall of worry is being climbed, come with me on the $BTC bull market bus,” he wrote about the rebound.
We are still on struggle street, but the moon ain’t far away.
The day prior, Hayes had cautioned over “FUD” surrounding Binance, arguing that risk assets were responding to bigger macroeconomic problems, which would, in turn, be resolved.
